  • From the desk of Jack Moyers, MCA Board President

    What does Meadville Council on the Arts mean to you? To me, becoming

    a part of MCA many years ago has made my life much richer.

    Art is everywhere; art is all around us. Art transcends gender, race, creed,

    color, generations, political views, and even your preference in sports teams.

    Art can be exciting and relaxing at the same time. Art comes in many forms:

    think of the performing arts, the musical arts, the visual arts, and the industrial

    arts. No art is any better or any worse than another, for the appreciation of art

    lies in the senses of the beholder. Once you let art into your life, many things

    take on new meanings.

    Our Great Maker has provided us with an earth with which we can sustain life.

    We are also provided with great, natural, works of art: the splendor of

    a sunrise, the magnificence of a sunset, the rhythm of raindrops, the

    orchestration of a thunderstorm, the song of a bird, the call of a whale

    all provided for us each to enjoy, marvel, and appreciate. Recognizing and

    respecting the art around you stimulates the senses and the mind and can

    create a deeper insight and influence in everything you do.

    I have served on the board of Meadville Council on the Arts for nearly ten

    years now. I've seen the ebb and flow of its economics, the flourishes and

    declines in its memberships, its hard times and good times. But the joy of

    witnessing live performances from famous and not so famous performers in the

    theater, the experience of seeing art in so many forms, textures, and medias in

    the gallery, have brought enrichment to my life. Even more, my greatest riches

    come from the people I've had the opportunity to meet and work with, seeing

    their commitment and passion for not just art, but for MCA. These things

    all together provide a wealth that doesn't vary with the stock market or the

    economy, wealth for the mind and soul that one can live and recall as long as

    the brain will allow.

    MCA takes little to sustain relative to what it offers in return. Through the

    dedicated staff, volunteers, and teachers, we provide not only an entertainment

    venue, but also offer lessons in a multitude of art disciplines. Young, old,

    talented - or not - everyone can benefit by letting MCA into their life. I know

    I did, and my eyes were opened to a new world, the ability to look at things

    differently, and a fresh way to experience lifes nuances.

    Sincerely, Jack Moyers
